Do you get overwhelmed just thinking about
How To Get Organized?
The overwhelming feeling that comes to most people who have asked themselves this question over and over again without getting anything done is well…overwhelming. Do you ever stand in the middle of your cluttered area and get frozen? Don’t know where to begin? Don’t know how to begin? Are you stuck? Does the question, how do I get organized spin around in your head?
The answer to this question is “slight persistent effort,” continuous progress in small increments and you begin with any one of the ideas I’m going to share with you in this post.
1. The Trashy Easy Pickens
Grab a trash bag and choose one area; kitchen, living room, office etc. Set a timer for 5 minutes and pick up EVERYTHING that you can easily see as trash. If you have to think about it leave it there. When the timer goes off set it for another 5 and go back through looking for more trash. You may not pick up as much the next time because in this round you may have to think about it – that’s OK. Remind yourself, how do I get organized?….”slight persistent effort”
2. Gather & Group
Grab an empty bin or box and set your timer for 5 minutes. Go through your space and pick up as many like items as possible; if in the office pick up office supplies or craft supplies or photos & frames, in the living room pick up books & toys or kids clothing. In the kitchen pick up mail & coupons or empty cans & jars.
3. The Ruler Rule
How do I get organized? “Slight persistent effort.” Take a ruler and measure out a one-square foot spot on your desk or kitchen counter and focus only on that area. Put things away or designate a home for them. Don’t forget to set your timer so don’t get lost in your project!
